Funding call for LGBT+ History Month 2023 celebrations

November 23rd, 2022

As part of the university’s ongoing commitment to EDI, we are inviting applications to celebrate people within the LGBT+ community, raise awareness of LGBT+ history, and make progress towards a more equitable future.

LGBT+ History Month will be celebrated in February 2023 and the theme is “Behind the Rainbow: Demystifying LGBTQIA+”.

This funding initiative is designed to support multiple locally planned events/activities throughout the month.

Help us celebrate and recognise LGBT+ History Month 2023

Up to £200 will be awarded to host local events or activities with funding applications being assessed by the theme leads for LGBTQIA+.

Applicants are encouraged to seek matched funding from another source (this could be the associated School/Department/Group or an external source).

For applications, please complete this form by Thursday 15 December 2022.

Everyone who applies will be notified of whether they have been awarded funding before the winter break.

Applications should indicate how the local event or activity is connected to the EDI Strategic Delivery Plan and our EDI Priorities for 2022/23 objectives.

Applicants are also encouraged to consider intersectionality of their events with the other EDI themed areas:

  • Disability equality
  • Gender equality
  • Race equality
  • Wellbeing

You can find inspiration from previous LGBT+ History Month events here.

For any queries, please contact the EDI Coordinators at

Not all events and projects for LGBT+ History Month will require funding. However, we are asking anyone who wants to host an event or deliver a project for LGBT+ History Month to complete the application form.

This is so that the team know about all the great activities that are taking place and can offer any other support or advice you may need to make your event a success.
